About

Spanish is my first language. I am from Mexico and have lived in the US since 1984. I have always enjoyed teaching, and have been doing it for over 30 years. I was only 17 years old when I started my first part-time position as a teacher, teaching various adult classes in Guadalajara, Mexico.

I have extensive experience teaching beginner, intermediate, advanced, and conversational Spanish to adults, teens, and younger children, in both group settings and private tutoring. My classes are fun, engaging, and geared to help my students learn fast. For private students, I customize my lessons according to each of my students’ learning style and individual needs. My students’ confidence and grades improve greatly after just a few private lessons.

My teaching experience in the US includes teaching Spanish at HCC (Houston Community College – Continuing Education), home schooling my daughters since 1997, and teaching ESL, Spanish,  Latin and Word Power  in home school classes, as well as private tutoring to executives, and elementary, middle, and high school students. I continue teaching my husband and daughters to speak Spanish correctly and I don’t let them get away with mispronunciations! As a matter of fact, on many occasions, my husband has been asked if he is from South America!

Your success motivates me! If you desire to succeed in any of my areas of expertise , or  just to learn to speak and pronounce Spanish correctly, I’m here to help!
